I do now know how many times I have covered this topics— may be half a dozen times, or may be more! We often try to avoid repetitive topics on the site but sometimes we can’t help writing about them again and again, and the only reason to do this is the popularity of the apps and widgets from Sony’s Xperia devices among those who do not own them.

The latest phablet devices from Sony, namely Xperia Z Ultra and Honami i1, feature improved versions of the Xperia Home launcher and multi-media apps like Album, Movies and Walkman. Due to their rich experience, these apps always make people pine to get them on their devices and since it is the world of Android, such wishes are often fulfilled. It was just a week ago that we shared the launcher app and widgets from the Xperia Honami i1/ Z Ultra ported by ThilinaC for non-Xperia devices with Android 4.2.2.

Many of us with Android 4.2.2 installed the newly ported launcher but somewhere in our mind we kept feeling a void that demanded the most lovable media apps from the new devices from Sony. Finally, as we all expected, the wait is over with a wider reach. Rizal Lovins, who has earned a good name for porting the media apps from Xperia devices in the past, has now come with another masterly stroke.

The all new Album, Movies and Walkman apps from Sony Xperia Z Ultra/Honami i1 can now be enjoyed by all Android users who have any version Android Jelly Bean on their device. I have already been using these apps on my HTC One (on Android 4.2.2) and Galaxy S3 (Android 4.1.2) for a couple of days now and they are running perfectly.


The Album and Movies apps are just amazing in themselves. However, the Walkman apps with Clear Audio, Xloud, music animations and powerful equalizer, outputs stunning audio quality.

How to Install:

  1. Download  the ZIP files from above and copy to your device.
  2. Turn off your phone and boot it into CWM/TWRP recovery mode.
